Around 1993 after being at the RAC rally in Glengap (not far from this photo) Had a lot of Astras in the 90's. Used to drive 60000m year. They were knackered after 2 years up and down farm roads. as a 20 somethin year old, rally mad drove like a nutter everywhere.
Base Merit diesel 1.9 non turbo models. Think I had 4 in 6 years. Followed by a merit estate N reg.
waiting on a new Astra Elite 1.4t now. Dont drive like a nutter now.
its an old photo that dirty astra went years ago (1993 ish). I think it would have been defleeted at about 2.5yrs or 160000m of hard work traveling around farms . Worked for the Scottish Milk Marketing Board at the time cars were from Lex Leasing.
no chance of a side by side picture.
I've had a lot of cars since then.
